What symbols/characters are not allowed in tags?
On the sidebar it says that these are the Tag Characters:
Tag characters: [a-z 0-9 + # - .]
I'd assume anything not listed there is invalid.
What characters are allowed in tag names?
- lowercase Latin letters
- number symbol (hash)
ãand foreign language
At least for chat room tags I was just able to create a tag español for the Spanish chat room. I thought the system would automatically change it to
espanol like it does for the question tags. So I went further and tried to create a
日本語 for the Japanese chat room, but it got converted to
So the answer may be:
- Some Latin-1 characters are no longer disallowed
- That subsets of characters not allowed in question tags is different to that not allowed in chat room tags
- There's a bug in chat room tags that allows you to use characters that are not supposed to be allowed
